'86 5000 CS Quattro


fr 16"x8.5" ET35 w/245/45-16 Dunlop D40M2 - all stock - no rubbing
rr 16"x7.5" ET45 w 225/50-16 Dunlop D40M2 - ~1.5deg neg camber, otherwise 
stock, no rubbing.

This combo handles _very_ well on the track BTW.  One of the nicest 
handling cars I've ever driven at Waterford.


15x7 ET36 w/215/60-15 D60A2 all around.

Also, with Hoosier autocross radials, tyhe 245/45-16 wouldn't even think 
about fitting under the fenders.   This just points out that not all 
245s are created equal.  Some are wider than others.  :-)
